Grand Slam Lodge has six beachfront, duplex-style villas, all incorporating two spacious rooms (one at ground level and the other directly above) with elegant and modern interiors, two king-size beds, air-conditioning, a full bath with jacuzzi tub, a veranda overlooking the ocean, 24-hour electricity, and a number of additional comforts and conveniences. The main lodge features a large restaurant, a bar, a comfortable lounge area and exterior deck with ample seating for those who’d rather have breakfast or dinner alfresco. The expansive grounds, laden with palm trees and natural foliage, also include a pool just steps from the beach, with plenty of loungers around it to relax and take in the great views.
Grand Slam Lodge has a full-service restaurant serving a varied menu that includes international, Mexican and Caribbean dishes featuring local seafood, quality meats, and fresh vegetables and fruits. A full breakfast is served daily, with fruit juices and plenty of coffee to get you going. Lunch changes daily and is packed right into the cooler that will ride with you on the boat, along with bottled water, soft drinks and beer, should you request some. Come dinner time, you’ll get to sink your teeth into some of the most delectable food you’ve ever tasted, featuring grouper, snapper, lobster or shrimp, as well as prime beef, chicken and pork expertly prepared in a range of ways, often complemented by lip-smacking sauces and sides. Guests with dietary restrictions can be accommodated, but prior notice (at least two weeks, preferably) is strongly recommended.
Service from certain cell providers works in Cancun, Playa del Carmen and sometimes Tulum, but you should expect the signal to quickly wane once you enter the Sian Ka’an Biosphere, the expansive tropical forest and marine reserve in which Grand Slam Lodge and Punta Allen, the nearby village, are located. Nevertheless, the lodge has a phone and offers complimentary Wi-Fi.
